Las Vegas is known for a lot of things. Art usually isn’t on the top of the list but there’s plenty to be found all over town. The “Art’s District” in downtown Las Vegas continues to be one of the rapidly growing parts of Sin City. This is a great part of town if you
The Venetian (and The Palazzo) were the first hotels that introduced me to Las Vegas luxury properties. I was “lured” by a complimentary room offer and stayed pretty often at my own expense. For a few years, I stayed almost exclusively at The Palazzo when I wanted to enjoy a larger hotel room and more
Technically, Resorts World Las Vegas opened in late June. I visited a few times and had a great time exploring the newest Las Vegas casino. The property is massive and is the kind of grand casino experience that visitors expect on the Vegas Strip.

Paris Las Vegas will be home to the second Lisa Vanderpump venue in Sin City. The first location is the always busy Vanderpump Cocktail Garden inside Caesars Palace. Vanderpump à Paris is under construction and is on schedule to open sometime this winter. Vanderpump à Paris will feature drinks, snacks, and Vanderpump’s signature eclectic design
Many of the most amazing Las Vegas experiences come from improving concepts developed elsewhere. A case in point is the Supper Club. This isn’t a new idea. This dinner and a show experience go back to the Roarin’ 20s. However, Bellagio and Wynn have updated the concept for today. The experience at both Supper Clubs

It feels great to think about planning visits to Las Vegas for next year already. Thanks to some eager casinos, it’s time to get started. Las Vegas casinos are already releasing information for Super Bowl parties in 2022!
This isn’t another Vegas is back(!) blog post. Technically all entertainment news in Las Vegas can be considered “Vegas is back” but that’s another story. During the second quarter and into July just about every hotel increased room occupancy. Hotel rooms at the Vegas Strip casinos were more than 90% full from Friday through Sunday.
Las Vegas buffets are back! Well, sorta. Not all Las Vegas buffets have reopened but many on the Vegas Strip are back. The COVID-19 pandemic forced the closure of all Las Vegas buffets last year. Casino operators have had time to evaluate if the self-serve all-you-can-eat dining concepts are worth reopening.
Last year was sort of a dud for enjoying all that Las Vegas has to offer. Even though I live here, there wasn’t too much time spent in casinos for the vast majority of the year. As the year was coming to an end, I started making my way back into the real world…the world
